As time went on I saw
How magnificent it would be
to view the sun’s pink hue alongside a full moon
from the warmth of my capsule.
And finally, I realized
I am an astronaut already,
free within the boundaries of this sacred container.
Constantly surrounded by the enchantment
of the rising moon + setting sun.
And with this, I opened the latch
and at once felt the truth,
I am the vessel and the canvas
The stars, the moon, the sun, the sea + the Earth.
Without the ship I am held within,
the powerful force of my existence
would be unbearable to hold
and for that, I am grateful for the ship I once resisted.
I am not in flexion or extension,
but the in-between.
The ebb + the flow
like the eternity within breaths.
